Paroxysmal Vertigo with Nystagmus and Parotid Swelling

Paroxysmal Vertigo with Nystagmus and Parotid Swelling It is well known that severe head injury may give rise to pronounced disturbances of acoustic-vestibular function which may even become extinguished if the labyrinth is involved by a fracture of the temporal bone.

Abstract

It is well known that severe head injury may give rise to pronounced disturbances of acoustic-vestibular function which may even become extinguished if the labyrinth is involved by a fracture of the temporal bone. Less attention has been given to the fact that severe acoustic-vestibular disturbances may be observed also after less severe head injuries. This is exemplified by the present patient who also had recurrent parotid swelling. Report of a Case The patient was a boy, aged 11 years, the second of a family of 3. The pregnancy had been uneventful apart from minor vaginal bleeding in the 3rd month. Delivery occurred at term and was normal; birth weight 4,700 gm. The boy was fit and thrived normally during infancy. At the age of 2½ years he fell head first, into a basement passage, from the ground floor down 5 or 6 stone steps. He was brought to a
